Perez Hilton claims he acted the way he did in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house because he believed viewers would think he was being "fun and silly"
Perez Hilton thought people would think he was being "fun and silly" in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
The gossip blogger has confessed he agreed to take part in the reality show so people would see the real him but admits he was unsuccessful because his behaviour didn't come across as funny.
He said: "I am in regret for ever entering, I wish I could go back in time and not do it.
"I stand by everything I said. I was a silly clown, in the best possible way, I love silly clowns.
"I'm a big child and I am naïve. I thought gosh, people will see me being fun and silly."
The 36-year-old star claims he acted controversially in order to steal the limelight from those who are determined to win the show.
Explaining the incident during which he rubbed himself against the window while making sexual noises, he told ITV's 'Loose Women': "I don't know if you saw the before, or just the during, but it started to become apparent that when I entered a room, people would scurry away, and the energy would change.
"So that evening I did an experiment to myself. I thought, I wonder what would happen if I start singing out here to myself. I wonder what will happen."
"Me singing and dancing alone upset them, because they thought that was me stealing their spotlight."
Claiming their reaction led him to continue with his antics, he added: "When I found out they were upset I thought, well gosh, let me do that more ... Then I just took it really far, because that's what I do."
Perez - whose real name is Mario Armando Lavandeira - went on to confess he'd hoped people would get a chance to see the real him but admitted he hadn't been "successful".
The father-of-one now plans to take some time off from work to focus on him and his son "for a while".
